  1. This has been discussed before, you can search for it. But in any case, if you take an Aes Sedai damane into the middle of a batttle it is a fair bet that she will feel in danger and thus be able to use the power as a weapon.
  2. It is suprising that there is any room left in Rand's head for himself.
  3. How dare all those soldiers get their hands blown off in war. So unoriginal of them. Yes, I am sick of people likening WoT to Star Wars.
  4. I've also wanted The Travels of Jain Farstrider for ages. Not to mention something on the Trolloc Wars or the bad arse false dragons who "shook the pillars of the earth" or whatever.
  5. This thread is too serious. Does anybody else like pieces of parsely in their sausages?
  6. OK, but explain why Loial, in writing the book, gave a perfect account of the cleansing of Saidin yet later on he is begging for details of it? :P
  7. Truly, thou art Robert Jordan the Second.
  8. I know how they can fly. They make another mass bigger than Earth at stick it in the sky, and when they want to fly they pull the greater mass closer to earth so the gravity pulls them up towards it, and then move it away again for equal gravity so they float. Then they can beat their wings to travel in whatever direction. You think it is stupid? It is! :lol:
  9. As for that Mat's eye theory, I think it will be Thom doing the rescuing. Remembering... Egwene's dream, was it?... where Thom pulls Moiraine's blue gem out of a fire.
  10. When Mat got his rooms in the Ebour Dari palace he was disappointed that his chamber pot wasn't made of Sea Folk porcelain or something. :lol: Chamber pots also get a starring role when the bubble of evil hits Salidar - it created a bit of a smell.
  11. Perhaps we shall see Mat and Perrin bound to the Horn? :lol:
  12. I would love that too - but I don't like the odds of it.
  13. Selene is the Greek goddess of the moon, I think. Nynaeve is also a reference to some other character. As are a good deal of the names. Al'Thor, for one.
  14. Well, who are they? People who aren't necessarily vital to the plot but are somewhat cool. I would go with Beslan, because he is hardcore and hilarious. And Bela, because she is Super Horse. And a fair few others, I will post them when they come into my head.
  15. I agree on Cadsuane. I would like nothing more than to see her humiliated. She has some good points, but ever since she strode in gasbagging the first time we met her I just want to somebody to slap her and say, mildly, "Shut your pie hole, woman".
  16. I'm thinking that in some way Lews Therin could die as he wants to, and Rand can live on.
  17. I agree with Dragonsworn, the Aes Sedai are very annoying. I suppose they have grown stale over time having to face nothing but troublesome rulers and the odd male channeler, along with some pretty dumb recruitment policies. But yeah, I think they were comfortable hiding away in their precious Tower and when something bigger than them came along they want to pretend it doesn't exist. She comes up again in Ebou Dar, where Carridin orders her to see him dead.
  18. Did you look at the picture? Anyway, Shayol Ghul isn't an island now.
  19. Nauru as Shayol Ghul? Are you serious? For one, it is an island. Second, it is pretty much flat. Third, it is tropical and covered with greenery. Fourth, it is crisscrossed with roads. To sum it up, it doesn't look at all actively volcanic and scary and forbidding - more of a nice holiday place. http://www.un.int/nauru/images/nauru_01.jpg I don't think the Aussie desert would be a good Waste. The Waste has butts and crap like that, our desert's formations usually aren't volcanically formed. Other than that though, it has the mean bushes and animals and land texture that I would visualise.
  20. It isn't, it is just the accent. Damn stupid accent that it is. :twisted:
  21. I would say that a heap of the nations aren't inspired by "Eurpope".
